good place to start if you want to drive teams its teams only
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – 25 February 2017
I had a good experience with Covenant as far as learning the trucking industry and getting to see the country. I drove cross country to California and washing State and back to the east coast and seeing all states inbetween. loved driving for them but the team thing wasn't for me. Dealing with someone eleses issues and breaking hard almost throwing you in the floor when you are trying to sleep wasn't fun. but over all a good place to work. And the constant pay issues and not being able to get ahold of them when you are on the road, due to them only working a few days a week.
great equipment, frendily people, good training
far away from home. Teams only at Covenant, not enough pay for the road driving, too
I hated working here. was not compensated well for how much work was done on night shift. Hours were terrible and overtime was not paid. Unrealistic expectations by management so it is impossible to get full bonuses
no opportunities to move up on the operations floor. advancement requires a transfer to a different department. this is initially a pay cut until you are able to move up within that department. just not an ideal place for a long term career oriented individual.
Covenant promises the moon when really handing you a hot light bulb

If a trainer does something inappropriate over the road you are promised it will be resolved only to be black balled because they have been there longer. Harassment and disrespect for married couples is permitted if its a long time employee doing it. Do not recommend husband and wife teams being trained by this company
Unbelievable place to work with many opportunities to move up in the company. Incredible benefits and a strong structure to build your career. The employees were very receptive to new perspectives and were eager to help all staff succeed.
I enjoy doing tractor trailer, because it gave me the chance to travel as well as see the country of America. It was exciting while I travel I interact with people.The office supervise me on any suggestions and also assist with direction.

Love to drive and see the country side, people are friendly and helpful easy to get along with. The money is there if you want to do your job, it takes some toll on you if you are a family oriented person.
Good company to work for, everyone at this terminal are super friendly and willing to help and explain. Everything was always said up front from recruiting and orientation to dispatch and your fleet manager. There were mistakes made with payroll but they always fixed it and/or explained the way it works. I recommend questioning everything although the are honest and willing to explain that doesn't mean they're forthright. My fleet manager was good with getting me home.
Geeat staff, super friendly, they are always willing to work with you and pay is decent

Beware of trainers (especially if female). No "open door" to dispatchers or management. Facilities were not great (you'd be better off at a truck stop) Doesn't pay well. Takes advantage of drivers. Training (continuing education) not readily available. Favoritism and clicks prominent.

Compensation for work was great also my fleet manager where fantastic however Hometime is very few and days as this is the truck driving industry. My biggest complaint would only be their training procedures for beginners.
